BookMarket Shop Volunteers

The shop is up and running but to offer regular hours we need volunteers.  We hold training sessions and shadowing experiences so you feel comfortable to help.   Think about volunteering once a week, every other week or once a month and even with a friend. Easy to do and lots of fun.  If you are interested in helping in the shop please contact us.

EVENTS
We are looking for people with ideas, who want to help set up, tear down, work with caterers.  We want to have fun, creative events that engage our members and potential members.  

For example we have  hosted a murder mystery.  We needed volunteers to be actors, to get a caterer and work with them, create table decorations, and finally to set up the tables and tear them down.  This is just one type of event and we are looking for ideas for events.  If you are interested in events,
contact us and let us know you are interested in Events.

VOLUNTEERS

Do you like to help organize groups of people to tackle a project?  The Volunteer group looks at coordinating our efforts and focusing our small but a growing volunteer group to tackle different projects.  We even use free software - Doodle-to help with our scheduling of our helping hands.  We need people to keep our volunteer paperwork completed, track their hours and fill other committees' volunteer requests with potential volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteers, contact us and let us know you are interested in Volunteers.
